“It is always important to know when something has reached its end. Closing circles, shutting doors, finishing chapters, it doesn’t matter what we call it; what matters is to leave in the past those moments in life that are over.”
Paulo Coelho

There are memories in life that you hold on for a long time. These are things you keep deep within your souls, impressions of happiness and laughter, impressions of uncertainty and loneliness, impressions of success and achievements, and impressions of failure and defeat. You hang on to these things because it has something that makes you grasp on it.

You hang on to memories of an old lover or situation. You settle for loneliness for a little while and play the victims of your self-pity and misery… And as the day passes by, you make it even harder for yourself to move forward and see what lies ahead.

Letting go is never easy for you despite the heaviness you carry on your shoulder.

Letting go is scary for you, cause you’re afraid that after losing the person you once loved, you’ll lose the traces and eventually lose yourself, too.

Letting go is a decision you never make because you are not firm enough to answer the questions in your head.

Letting go is a painful process that every person goes through in a day-to-day life. It can be in any aspects of human lives. It can take many forms and angles. It can be a thing that is no longer useful to you. It can be a condition that you get used too that no longer serves its purpose. It can be a friend who betrays your trust. It can be a family or loved ones who become unfaithful to you… And it can be you, for not forgiving yourself, and others, after damaging and letting yourself down for so many times.

So when will you realize that you have to stop holding on to the past that no longer exists?

How do you let go? How will you let go of the hand that’s hurting you?

“If pain must come, may it come quickly. Because I have a life to live, and I need to live it in the best way possible. If he has to make a choice, may he make it now. Then I will either wait for him or forget him”
Paulo Coelho

I know this will never be a one time step that you need to take. I know that you have to go with the process of moving forward and have the courage to walk away. I know it requires a lot of time and effort. I know how many tears you need to shed. I know how much hurt and pain you have to handle… But, I also know that you’re not the only person on earth who experience such pain.

”   My heart might be bruised, but it will recover and become capable of seeing beauty of life once more. It’s happened before, it will happen again, I’m sure. When someone leaves, it’s because someone else is about to arrive–I’ll find love again”
Paulo Coelho

I believe you can overcome this thing…

I believe you can move forward and appreciate what still remains.

I believe that no matter how difficult things may become, you’ll surpass it.

I believe you will soon accept the reasons why it happened.

I believe you’ll be happier after the storm in your life calmed down.

I believe miracles will do its magic to heal your broken heart.

I believe that someone out there will make you feel at home once again.

Believe me, it’s possible…

You can make it, you can let go, and you can be happy again… because “I did”.
